Glazed Wares as Cultural Agents in the Byzantine, Seljuk and Ottoman Lands: Evidence From Technological and Archaeological Research

67 December 2018

The intent of ANAMED’s 2018 Annual Symposium, which is convened by Filiz Yenişehirlioğlu, Nikos Kontogiannis and Beate Böhlendorf-Arslan,  is to bring together researchers engaged in the study of decoration and technology of glazed pottery, ranging from the early Byzantine era to the end of the Ottoman period. More than 10 years ago, the First International Symposium on Late Antique, Byzantine, Seljuk and Ottoman Pottery and Tiles in Archaeological Context (2005) took place in Çanakkale, the site of a major Late Ottoman production. It is envisaged that this year’s symposium will be the continuation of that conference, this time focusing on the glazed wares and the new information from current interdisciplinary research.

The symposium is open to public and registration is not required. English-Turkish simultaneous translation will be provided with the support of the European Union.
